O Christmas Tree

Finally got our Christmas tree, a little later than usual this year.  For various reasons we couldn't make it to the one tree farm in the area where you can cut your own tree, so we just went to a roadside stand.  It was one of the few times that I've missed living up north.  Even when we had to go to a tree stand up there (like we did last year in Maine, since we were too sore after moving the day before), there was a really good selection and the trees looked fresh.  These trees down here were just.. meh.  But we got it home and once it was decorated, it looked pretty good.

Unfortunately, even with a fresh cut, the tree is not drinking.  At all.  Doug suggested we get a fake tree next year, but that will never happen.  We'll just plan better and go cut our own.  It'll be interesting having a Florida tree (probably a sand pine) instead of one of the northern species.

We also decorated the front of the house a bit.  Our inflatables did not survive, so that was disappointing, but we had plenty of lights.  Unfortunately, we were all out of 3M Command Hooks to make the lights go nicely across the arch, and we were too lazy to go out to the store to get more, so we just strung them across.  Not our best work, but oh well.
